The BlackBook

The new MacBookI've repeatedly told people that I wouldn't buy the first generation of any new Apple computer, just so they can get the bugs out. I've said it for years. Wait for the first revision, I counseled. Otherwise there will be problems, I said.

Well, forget that. I'm damn well buying one of these new MacBooks. I might even drop the $150 premium they're charging just for the black colour, though I hope I can persuade myself not to go that far. Sigh. I've gone insane.

UPDATE: Oddly, the Apple Store Affiliate Program only provides graphics of the white one. They've gotta change that:

P.S. If you use those links (left for Canada, right for U.S.) and buy something, I get a cut. Just so you know.
